Check out some insights from early career starters here at Transdev.


Meet Jocelyn
Commercial & Contracts Graduate

Jocelyn has attained a Bachelor’s degree of Law & Bachelor’s Degree of Commerce, Marketing at Macqaurie University

“It was definitely an exciting learning curve when I began working at Transdev. I had the opportunity to visit other bus depots when I started which really helped me meet the people in the organisation and understand the many facets of the business. I found it very inspiring that some of my colleagues started as a qualified tradesperson or driver and progressed into leadership roles.  There are so many opportunities at Transdev especially for those just beginning their careers. There is no set path and I truly believe you get out what you put in” 


Meet Milutin
Network Planning Graduate

Milutin has attained a Bachelor’s degree of Mathematics (Honours) at the University Of Newcastle.

“I think that the Transdev Graduate Program is really unique, being able to spend the first few months of your time in an operational placement allows you to gain a real understanding of how the business operates from the front line. I have been working with the operations team who deal with bus scheduling and traffic flow management. I found it extremely helpful to know and understand what frontline workers are dealing with as well as understanding the time constraints the team are under. Being able to experience both sides of the fence has really shaped the way I work and further solidified my career plans for the future.”

“I chose Transdev as they are a dominant player in the public transport industry. What I love most about our company is the freedom and trust you receive. My advice to new Transdev Graduates is make sure you familiarise yourself with as many people and departments as possible. I bet you will get good advice and information from a source you least expect”


Meet Mitchell
Mechanical Engineer Graduate

“The best thing about coming out of university and into a workplace like Transdev is being able to continuously learn in a comfortable, yet challenging workplace. The support and attention that gets paid to you has been a real highlight for me. The whole team really takes you under their wings and help you get the most out of the program. Being at Transdev has made me realise my future career path and has encouraged me to go back to University and complete my Masters in Business Administrations so I am able to work my way up and through Transdev.”

Diversity & Inclusion

Transdev is at the heart of keeping communities moving. We connect families, friends, and future generations where they live, work and play. We help to move communities around daily in ways that reduce the impact on our environment. Transdev endeavours to promote diversity by employing people who reflect the communities that we serve.

Diversity and Inclusion is paramount in delivering our business objectives by building an innovative culture by attracting, engaging and retaining skilled, diverse employees who improve business capability and performance.

Our commitment to Diversity & Inclusion is further displayed by our long term goals of

  • 50% appointment of females into our workforce by 2021
  • 40% appointment of younger candidates under 35 years of age by 2021

What we do

The Transdev Diversity and Inclusion policy promotes the recruitment and attainment of diverse gender identities, impairments and abilities, ages, languages, ethnicities, cultural backgrounds, sexual orientations, religious beliefs, political beliefs, trade union activities, parental and family responsibilities and social backgrounds.

To ensure we support our diverse workforce we have created Diversity Councils within each of our ten businesses across Australasia. Our Diversity Council’s are a way to ensure we provide an environment where everyone can thrive and value what makes each of us different.

We aspire to be an organisation where inclusion and diversity is simply part of who we are, the way we work, and how we do business.


We are committed to ensuring that everyone enjoys the same opportunities and rewards at Transdev, regardless of gender. To ensure we meet our goal of 50% appointment of women by 2021 we must have an infrastructure to support this. The following policies ensure everyone in the Transdev business can be supported equally:

  • Pay equity
  • Gender bias and discrimination
  • Parental leave
  • Domestic and family violence

Corporate Social Responsibility

Transdev is at the heart of keeping communities moving. We connect families, friends, and future generations where they live, work and play, and help to move them around daily in ways that reduce the impact on our environment.

Public transport is at the heart of the creating sustainable cities and communities. With this in mind, we are seeking to shift the dial and embed our approach to corporate social responsibility into every aspect of our operations and broader business. Our four pillars of workplace, industry, community and environment guides us to ensure that we can have the greatest impact possible. We know that the only way to improve from where we are today is to honestly assess our current activities and practices and set a genuine direction for our future. That’s why we have developed an interactive workshop that is currently being rolled out across Australia and New Zealand to engage our people into the impact they can have as individuals and the greater impact we can have as an organisation.

  • Workplace pillar: To date we have developed and deployed our diversity and inclusion strategy that sets ambitious targets to better balance the representation of women in our workforce, attract the next generation of talent and celebrate our cultural diversity.
  • Marketplace: As part of a growing industry, we ensure that our code of ethics meet and exceed current legislative requirement.
  • Community: We are proud to have launched SPIRIT, Transdev’s workplace giving program where we match donations up to $100 per person per annum, this is our way to show that we care about what our people care about.
  • Environment: We are working on a robust environmental plan to minimise our impact on the environment.
